1. Dynamic microphones (moving coil) are electromagnetic, inexpensive
rugged/sturdy, less sensitive, and capable of handling high SPL. Capacitor
microphones (condenser) require power (batteries, external
AET 1380 TEST #4 Review
1. Quantization (resolution) represents the level component (the number of bits
per sample affect dynamic range, which is level).
2. Sampling represents the time component; it determines the frequency response.
The sampling rate mu

Terms to Know
o As a vibrating object moves outward, it compresses molecules together, increasing pressure
o Continues away from the object as the momentum of the distributed molecules displaces adjacen
